"Dixie Bird grew up and has worked with youth on the Montreal Lake reserve in northern Saskatchewan. She now lives in Prince Albert, Sask., and will be a delegate to General Synod 2016 as one of the representatives of the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples. She is also a member of the Primate's Commission on the Doctrine of Discovery, Reconciliation and Healing. From those vantage points, she says she sees reconciliation happening in the opportunities for Indigenous Anglican voices to be heard in the church". "Youth suffer the consequences of previous generations' residential school experiences, Bird said. 'Today's youth are vulnerable', she added. Lacking a sense of belonging and spiritual grounding, youth can be drawn to anything that promises that security, from other churches to gangs, she said".
